Nonsense. There is no such thing as a slippery slope. *waves jedi hand
Australian gun-grabbers are now targeting one shot and bolt-action rifles, stating that it only takes “one bullet” to kill somebody. “Remember that 90 per cent of gun deaths have nothing to do with mass killings,” Alpers told the ABC. “They’re actually suicides and domestic violence, and it only takes one bullet in a domestic violence incident.”
Alpers and other anti-firearms activists reveal the underhanded incrementalism of gun control. The gun-grabbers say they are only interested in ridding society of military-styled weapons and want to protect the rights of ducks hunters and target shooters, but the fact is their ultimate goal is the elimination of all firearms.

It will only be a matter of time before hunting rifles in the US are pegged as 'sniper rifles' and they will ban those too.

Haven't you talked to an Australians or UK members here? They love the fact that their government disarmed them (I know there are a few here that don't, but more are self righteous about their loss of rights). In ten years they will be saying "good thing we got rid of those bolt actions, nasty things those."

Look mate, I've said it a couple of times before. Those blokes don't speak for all of us. In fact, everyone I know is pissed off about the gun laws in Aus. Just because some clown from south of the Yarra says it's a good thing means squat. There are many, many rural communities in Australia who think these gun-grabbers should go take a running jump. If this new load of rubbish does come to pass, I'll lose my 1942 smle .303 and my Anshutz .22 hornet .....and it will be a bitter pill to swallow I can tell you.
